#azerbaijan, road from the khinalig (xinaliq) village to #gabala (#qabala) the mourning totem the view, the sinuous road winding its way to the horizon, incited one to reflect upon life. the beauty of the place was obvious, inspiring, exhilarating. there, the colorful totem brought to mind the finality of our lives – the death which lies around a bend in the road, where we leave a conspicuous trace in the eyes of the living. the view along the drive from the khinalig village to the gabala region. located on a summit in the caucasus mountains, the northern village is referred to as “an island in the mountain” since is the highest and most remote village in azerbaijan. the village dates back at least 5,000 years and has remained virtually unchanged. the population of approximately 1,200 people belongs to the kettidt minority. they have preserved their unique language (kettish) and way of life and believe that they are the ancestors of noah. text written by rachel deghati. published in the book "azerbaijan, elegance of fire" (2014) #khinalig #mountain #landscape #river #green #totem #landscapephotography #landscapelovers #travelphotographer #travelmemories #village #kettidt #noah #aztagram #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan ##عكاس#رضادقتى @thephotosociety

#azerbaijan, #ismayilli region, #ivanovka village in azerbaijan, while working on a long term assignment, i found a very specific and interesting tradition. this picture belongs to a series of photo reports on the christian, muslim and jewish communities of azerbaijan, who inhabit the same land. this unique exhibition sheds light on the incredible assimilation of diverse religious groups all driven by the desire to share in a mutual respect that is not present in other countries. at a sunday “sobraniye” or service, the molokan pastor leads the traditional prayer. their prayer house has no icons or ornaments because they believe in worshiping god who cannot be seen. the molokans, known as “milk (moloko) drinkers,” are christian russians who refused to adhere to the fasts and rituals of the russian orthodox church. after being expelled from russia, they have struggled to preserve their 400-year-old way of life in azerbaijan in the face of emigration and the lack of social and economic support. the ivanovka village is home to the last group of prosperous molokans in the caucuses due to their preservation of a soviet era collective farm, the kolkhoz. text written by rachel deghati. #whitebeard #ivanovka #religious #book #reading #community #spirituality #tradition #christian #tolerance #christianity #pray #prayer #molokans #aztagram #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan ##عكاس#رضادقتى @thephotosociety

#azerbaijan, #gakh (#qakh) district, kurmuk church in azerbaijan, while working on a long term assignment, i found a very specific and interesting tradition. this picture belongs to a series of photo reports on the christian, muslim and jewish communities of azerbaijan, who inhabit the same land. this unique exhibition sheds light on the incredible assimilation of diverse religious groups all driven by the desire to share in a mutual respect that is not present in other countries. a young woman’s face reflects the soft glow of candlelight as she prays and honors the legend of saint george’s slaying of the dragon. saint george, a 3rd century saint from palestine, is celebrated by muslims and christians alike. in azerbaijan’s northern district bordering georgia, the ancient caucasian-albanian church accepts both azerbaijani muslims and christian georgians. these two very different religious communities come together as one to celebrate what they call the kurmukoba festival. most participants buy ten home-made beeswax candles and participate in a short pilgrimage up the steep hill to the church. some of the candles are lit during the hike and are stuck to the side of the mountain. the remaining candles are lit inside the church; however, one may not enter the church until having circled around it three times, kissing its wall and praying at each of its four corners. text written by rachel deghati. published in the book "azerbaijan, elegance of fire" (2014) #portraitphotography #church #kurmuk #christian #woman #candle #azerbaijani #spirituality #tolerance #christianity #qax #celebration #religion #aztagram #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan ##عكاس#رضادقتى @thephotosociety

Convivência pacífica no azerbaijão entre cristãos, mulcumanos e judeus !#repost @rezaphotography (@get_repost) ・・・ #azerbaijan, #baku, holy myrrhbearers cathedral in azerbaijan, while working on a long term assignment on the christian, muslim and jewish communities who live peacefully together. this story sheds light on the incredible assimilation of diverse religious groups all driven by the desire to share in a mutual respect that is not present in other countries. a woman from the orthodox christian community lights candles at the easter vigil. the orthodox church holds an easter vigil at sundown where a paschal candle is illuminated by a sacred flame. the candle is passed around so that all the participants can light the candles they are holding. the growing light symbolizes the light of christ coming into the world. this russian orthodox church was closed down during soviet times and used as a warehouse and gym. during black january in 1990, it was severely damaged by soviet missiles. in 2000, the church was fully restored with financial aid from the azerbaijani entrepreneur, aydin gurbanov, a muslim. the church became a cathedral a year later. text written by rachel deghati. published in the book "azerbaijan, elegance of fire" (2014) #pilgrimage #portraitphotography #cathedral #holymyrrhbearers #christian #woman #candle #azerbaijani #spirituality #tolerance #russianorthodox #russianchurch #easter #religion #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan ##عكاس#رضادقتى @thephotosociety

@thephotosociety photo by @rezaphotography // animal park of #argelès-gazost, #france after months spent wandering alone through the south of france, over the course of the four seasons as i worked on a book for national geographic, we decided that we would share this adventure as a family during a few weeks of the summer. our children were small (2 and 7 years of age) and we had always tried to make them understand the realities of the work of a photographer... then we had a chance to really make them a part of it! our little girl djanan engaged in a dialogue with a marmot who had made a break from the park and was successfully returned there by the park rangers. text written by rachel deghati #cute#joy #happiness #complicity#goodmoment #goodtime #littlegirl#familytrip #french #languedocroussillon#midipyrenees #nature #animal#marmot #animalpark #nationalpark#picoftheday #igers #photooftheday#photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto#rezadeghati #rezaphotography#rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى# عكاس @ddjanan @thephotosociety @synkretism #synkretism

Still life mediterranean sea. my son and i had just returned from a trip we took together to algeria. one of my priorities has always been to share my work as a photojournalist with my children and we tried to live that as well as soon as it was possible to do so. these trips enabled each of them to discover the world but also helped to make up for my months of absence. we had gone to spend a few weeks in algeria while i was working on a book on the country. we had decided to cross from marseille to algiers by boat in order to share the experiences of some of the algerians who were heading home. sometimes, i find that the pure and simple composition of a still life creates a silence that murmurs to me. #blue #sea #porthole #window #banana #apple #fruits #stilllife #white #boat #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza#rezaphoto #rezadeghati​ #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist​ ​#webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس​ [email protected] picture published in the book "chemins parallèles" (éditions hoebeke). available at info@webistan.com
